an electronic mix of 80s synth

Hello and welcome back… Music is a huge part of my life and i am often looking for new music. Alot of new music sounds very 80s and is often a fresh alternative to crap that is played over and over by radio stations. This is my favorite top 10 of  newish songs that have a 80s flavor.

Number 1 = GRUM – through the night… to me, sounds like human league ( the video even looks 80s )

Number 2 = DURAN DURAN – being followed…to me sounds like Duran Duran ( obviously ) hold back the rain, my own way.

      Hi thanks for your comment, I had cut copy on a short list, they are an excellent band. This site is a carbon copy( back up) of my main site = electronic80s.blogspot.com.
      I have done a mixtape that you can download for free here = http://electronic80s.blogspot.com.au/2013/03/mixtape-8-sounds-like-80s-side-a.html
      Funny enough I had cut copy on this list of songs but dropped it last minute because of time restrictions, if it gets popular enough I will do a part 2…
      Many thanks for your interest.
